ProsWhere there has been the introduction of great teachers into the profession and great leaders of schools and systems who would otherwise not have considered education, that's a benefit to the students in high needs communities who might not otherwise have access to that talent.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to manage, develop your managers, recognize that you do not know everything and that others might have valuable insight.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
